This is probably why nimrod and sargon would be so close is what i am saying and here is something else for sargon being asshur II
Gen 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Gen 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
Gen 10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
Gen 10:11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
Gen 10:12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
The author is mentioning asshur before he is even mentioned in the list of the sons of shem so I think this is trying to tell us something especially going out of his way saying all this in the middle of the lineage of ham's sons hmmmmm
